Earlier today, Microsoft announced that the Windows 10 for phones preview is available for download. One caveat with the release is that it will not run on all Windows Phones that are currently out in the market.
For those of you who want to try out the OS, you can check to see if your device is eligible by checking the list below:
- Lumia 630
- Lumia 635
- Lumia 636
- Lumia 638
- Lumia 730
- Lumia 830
Understandably, this will make a few of you upset. Rightfully so, as you want to try out the next-gen OS but Microsoft has not made it available for your phone even though you have been a loyal Windows Phone user. Of course, supporting every phone out of the gate would have been setting expectations a bit high but we know this will not appease those who have been told they need to wait a bit longer.
The good news, if your device is not listed, is that they will be expanding the list of supported phones with future releases but there is not a definitive timeline for these updates.
